Tiller was afraid of the wind and while Don was below he came out of the boat trying to find refuge and crawled as you can see in our chart book. It didn't last long but I did have my camera out between waves.
We love this town of Beaufort. We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving here last year but are early this year as Thanksgiving is late. We had to sit on the boat for a while after we arrived because the wind gusts were up to 30 knots and we had to be sure the boat was anchored securely and we were far enough from other boats. We finally launched our dingy and went to town, did a little Christmas shopping, had an appetizer dinner at one of the local restaurants. It felt good to walk around town. We didn't partake of the shower facilities because washing my hair and then getting in the dingy with these temps - no thanks.
So with the high winds expected the next several days but the tides high mid day we think we will stick with the icw instead of heading out the Port Royal inlet as we thought me might - and as a PS ~ our friend Greg is safely in St. Mary's Georgia/Fenandina beach, FL but he paid for it. We made the right decision not to go outside. The winds were high, the waves were high and the inlet was hell. Why you ask? So do I ! .......Margaret
